Top 10 Emerging Trends in Health Care for 2021: The New

5 hours ago

1. More Strategic and Agile Supply Chains. Successful supply chains are becoming a key differentiator and vital part of the care delivery process in ways we have never seen before in health care.
2. Coopetition as a Viable Strategy. Cooperative competition, or coopetition, is a key trend in health care. While some providers view big-box stores, nationwide pharmaceutical chains and other new entrants as threats, other organizations see opportunity.
3. Patient Consumerization. Today we can receive goods the same day we order them, and track them minute by minute from order placement to delivery. It’s not surprising that patients expect the same high level of efficiency and transparency from their health care providers.
4. Personalization of Care. While patients want the convenience and ease of digital interactions, personalized care is still the touchstone of their loyalty.
5. Workforce Diversity and Safety. It will continue to be a challenge for providers to find the next generation of leaders to replace baby boomer executives who are retiring at a high rate.
6. Virtual Care. We will continue to see the emergence of virtual care solutions across the care continuum from telehealth visits to virtual hospital care and home-based care.
7. Artificial Intelligence and Automation. AI and automation are taking hold in health care at an accelerated rate as they have in other fields such as banking, media and retail.
8. Revenue Diversification. In my conversations with chief information officers, data is becoming the currency of tomorrow and the infrastructure must support needs at scale.
9. Mergers and integration. U.S. hospitals will exceed $320 billion in losses in 2020 due to the impact of COVID-19, according to AHA projections. Financial pressures will continue to be prevalent as more providers see a lifeline in partnering with larger organizations to remain competitive in today’s health care landscape.
10. Payer Shifts. With COVID-19 throwing historical utilization rates on their head and making 2021 projections nearly impossible to calculate, employers, providers and payers are forced to consider utilization, rates and risk as they model the coming year.

5 Key Healthcare Issues Pending In Congress: 'New Rules

12.29.2357 hours ago

1. Many proposed bills (and the above mentioned executive order) focus on the disclosure of cost and financial information to the patient as well as the relationship between the patient, provider, and insurer—details which up to now have not always been transparent. Cost disclosure has received a lot of focus from both the legislative and executive branches. The fact that patients do not receive information about costs up front impairs their ability to compare providers and the costs of alternative treatments. The executive order focuses on lowering healthcare costs via a variety of Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) initiatives designed to “enhance the ability of patients to choose the healthcare that is best for them.” Legislation in Congress is focused on “surprise” medical bills. These are medical bills in which a patient unexpectedly finds one or more of their medical service providers is out-of-network and is therefore not covered or only partially covered, resulting i...

12.29.2354 hours ago

1. In the U.S. and abroad, many individuals—particularly those from vulnerable communities—still lack access to quality healthcare for a number of reasons.

Top 5 Healthcare Problems & Solutions In 2021 ClearPoint

12.29.2359 hours ago

1. True crises used to be few and far between, but the past year has presented a perpetual state of crisis—a scenario that has posed an incredible challenge for healthcare organizations. According to Terry Zysk, CEO of LiveProcess, public health emergencies like COVID-19 require situation management: using real-time data analysis to understand how an event is unfolding, and reacting to it accordingly. It’s the only way that critical healthcare resources can be delivered to the right people at the right time during emergencies and natural disasters. A major problem with hospital management systems is they don’t provide access to the kind of real-time metrics that could improve response times and outcomes—for example, how many beds are available at a facility at any given time or the location of critical supplies. A number of software products can help gather real-time metrics, including situation management-specific platforms like LiveProcess. ClearPoint is another option that takes a m...
